Dataset creators British Geological Survey
Dataset theme Geoscientific Information
Dataset abstract

The TellusSW project acquired airborne geophysical data for SW England during the second half of 2013. The survey comprised a high resolution magnetic/magnetic gradient survey combined with a multichannel (256 channel) radiometric survey. The survey was carried out using 200 m (N-S) line separations at a mean elevation of 91 m. Encompassing the counties of Cornwall and parts of Devon and Somerset, the survey provided 60,323 line-km of data. The data are supplied in ASCII format and georeferenced maps of the geophysical data and their derivatives (useful for interpretation) are provided to facilitate spatial understanding and modelling of the soil, lithological, geological and environmental aspects of the data.

The dataset provides a useful exploration resource for academic/educational resource in relation to geoscience studies in the SW of England.

Glossary

Radiometric: Gamma ray spectroscopy measuring the ground content of natural and man-made radionuclides (radioactivity).

Lithological: The description of the macroscopic features of a rock, e.g. its texture, structure, mineralolgy.
